617 Idle Vibrations

Hey everyone,

I've recently dusted off my gold 300SD and started working on it. After replacing the old rusted out rear control arm and swapping a set of tires from my buddy's parts car, she's almost road worthy again. Key word there ALMOST Lol:






My dad said that the idle seemed to be a little rough. So I took a video to see how it compared to other 617s out there.

Granted the car hasnt been driven a whole lot, largely due to a rusted control arm, bad tires and a rear window leak..

Since I've taken this video, I adjusted the idle up so that in drive it hit about 750 or so while in drive and it seems to be smoother. I still would like to see how it compares to others out there.


Thanks!

-Kris

You can try adding a little more tension on the rack damper. These engines when idle dead-smooth when everything is just right...
